    Units: US | Metric


    • 1 lemon, juice of, meyer
    • extra virgin olive oil (use *twice* as much olive oil as you have Meyer lemon juice)


    1. 1
      *Note: I roasted the brussels sprouts instead of steaming them. I used Barefoot Contessa's basic recipe for: Roasted Brussels Sprouts!.
    2. 2
      Or, to STEAM the brussels sprouts: Bring a skillet half full of water to a boil. Trim the bottom of the Brussels sprouts. Cut in half if small or into lengthwise quarters if larger. You want the pieces to be of roughly equal size so they’ll cook in the same amount of time.
    3. 3
      Add 1 teaspoon of salt to the boiling water. Add sprouts and give them a stir. Cook for about 3 to 5 minutes or until bright green and beginning to be tender. They’ll keep cooking a bit after they’re drained.
    4. 4
      DRESSING: While the brussels sprouts are cooking, prepare the dressing. Squeeze juice of the zested Meyer lemon into a measuring cup. Add twice as much olive oil as lemon juice. Whisk well.
    5. 5
      Once the brussels sprouts are removed from the pan or oven, drain well (if they were steamed) and immediately toss with lemon zest. Grate the zest with a microplane directly onto the sprouts.
    6. 6
      Transfer the Brussels sprouts to a serving platter.
    7. 7
      Gently drizzle the pomegranate molasses on the brussels sprouts and garnish with the nuts. Check for salt and pepper.
    8. 8
      Drizzle the dressing over the Brussels sprouts.
    9. 9
      Variation: Replace lemon rind with orange.
    10. 10
      Cooking time will vary depending on your method of preparing the brussels sprouts.

      Delicious recipe! Just recently discovered that I love brussels sprouts. : ) This recipe really hit the spot as I love roasted vegetables and I especially love the tartness of lemon and pomegranate molasses. Will definitely make this dish again.

      Hard to assign stars because, for me, roasted brussel sprouts are 5+stars with just a bit of sea salt. So gilding the lily has the potential only to add work (complexity) it'd better also meet that perfection. :-) This does. Not beautiful with roasted brussel sprouts but ever so much more tasty.
